He has the power to appoint and dismiss the leaders of the judiciary, the state radio and television networks, and the supreme commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The Supreme Leader basically elects himself the way it is structured.

Who appoints the "Assembly of Experts"??....or are they elected??.....Or like some other people I know.....Just proclaim their importance??

The Assembly of Experts, which meets for one week every year, consists of 86 "virtuous and learned" clerics elected by the public to eight-year terms

What matters is who chooses the people to run for the Assembly of Experts.

Iranian "Democracy" is nothing more than a fašade.

Inaccurate.

The succession to Ayatollah Khamenei as leader looks remarkably open

With the defeat of Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi in the Experts Assembly election, the assembly will need a new chairman. The assembly will remain an opaque body, but whoever fills the post (as well as the conduct of his election) will be the next clue as to how the succession to Khamenei will proceed
.

The defeat in Tehran not just of Yazdi but also of Ayatollahs Mohammad Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi and Ahmad Jannati represents a serious blow to the senior clerics most alarmed by Rouhani and the prospect of better relations with the west. But the views of less vocal Assembly members elected round the country may be less clear-cut than those trumpeted on the noisy hustings in Tehran. Further surprises lie ahead.

The Supreme Leader of Iran is elected by the Assembly of Experts (Persian: مجلس خبرگان‎‎, Majles-e Khobregan), which is also in charge of overseeing the Leader.

I've already shown that the "President" has virtually no power.
He has no control over the Military.
He has no control over spiritual and social matters.
The Ayatollah controls everything that matters.
